7 Pairs of Shades for the Sunglass Hoarder

7 Pairs of Shades for the Sunglass Hoarderfeatured

I must confess: I’m a terrible hoarder. I own a box of aged tester sachets from all the times they went with a purchase or a magazine. Those are pretty much never used, apart from the times I fish out one moisturiser to take with me on a trip, and then forget about it until I come back home and find it in my bag. To the box it returns! I still have a whole A3 size art supplies bag from that time I tried to paint years ago. BUT YOU GUYS I MIGHT NEED IT SOMEDAY SOON. I bought a new pair of black leather boots and didn’t throw out the old. It’s been five years.

It’s not that I’m lazy (although I most definitely am), it’s just that I have that crippling feeling I will need this exact seemingly useless item. And so I leave it be. But my dusty drawers crammed with bizarre stuff is not what this post’s all about. This post is about the items I proudly keep on display. I don’t hoard sunglasses. I collect them.

The line is very thin here, but not if you think of it this way: Hoarding interferes with your life. Like that time my cat jumped on the shelf and shattered all those empty perfume bottles. Or when my brother suffered asthma attacks because I kept all of my forest finds (twigs, leaves, random insects) under the bed when we were little. A collection enhances your life. Like an array of pretty perfume bottles. Or forest treasures. Ok, I see the problem here.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you: 7 pairs of summer sunglasses for a sunglass hoarder collector.

  • I have two pairs of sunglasses right now – one that’s round and one that’s studded. I’m on the hunt for some aviators, too! Maybe I’m a sunglasses hoarder – I never thought about it before LOL Thanks so much for taking the time to link up with us at the #HomeMattersParty – we hope to see you again on Friday!

    • You’re definitely safe from hoarding for at least ten more pairs haha. I strongly believe in a new pair of sunnies’ therapeutic qualities 😀

  • I am a hoarder too, it’s a horrible condition- but those sunglasses are so worth it. Love the retro the best.

    • I’ve been a hoarder since childhood and now I’m a fashion stylist, so the clothes hoarding problem only gets worse haha. But you’re right, so worth it 😀

  • Darcy

    So my fun optoins! i really need to expand what is in my collection!

    • It seems there’s always a new style worth checking out 🙂

  • Dawn Lucy

    OMG, I “collect” sunglasses too … and I actually am now really a hoarder of most things. Love a fun fresh pair of shades! In love with your pink pair! Thanks for sharing with Fun Fashion Friday & hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!

    • Thank you for stopping by 🙂 I think most fashion bloggers can relate to the hoarding issue 😀

  • Celia Molkentin

    I love these shots! The mirrored pair are ones I’d love to get my hands on.


    • I’m in love with the mirrored pair too! Ray Ban have them in other colours as well, all gorgeous.

  • Great inspiration. I love mirrored sunglasses, and have an affinity for cat eye styles as well. <3 /Madison

    • Thank you Madison 🙂 Cat eye shape is one of my favourites too.

  • I REALLY love those big round ones! I may have to grab a pair the next time I’m out. Great list!

    • Those are Gucci, but I listed cheaper options below if you’re interested. I think H&M also came up with a nice round pair recently.
